Upscale people are fixated with food simply because they are now able to eat so much of it without getting fat, and the reason they don't get fat is that they maintain a profligate level of calorie expenditure. The very same people whose evenings begin with melted goats cheese... get up at dawn to run, break for a mid-morning aerobics class, and watch the evening news while racing on a stationary bicycle.
The futility of everything that comes to us from the media is the inescapable consequence of the absolute inability of that particular stage to remain silent. Music, commercial breaks, news flashes, adverts, news broadcasts, movies, presenters -- there is no alternative but to fill the screen; otherwise there would be an irremediable void. That's why the slightest technical hitch, the slightest slip on the part of the presenter becomes so exciting, for it reveals the depth of the emptiness squinting out at us through this little window.

Big moments like the Olympics tend to freeze things in place.
It's just very hard to break through the news cycle with peoples's eyes on the Olympics. That's even more true with the concerns about Zika and terrorism.
I'm looking at celebrities who are relevant or who want to participate in some of our more adventurous ideas. I've often said we're not just about hemlines, we're about headlines. I love the idea that as a monthly magazine, we can break news stories.
I fell into TV quite by accident but once I was in a newsroom for the very first time, I was hooked because I loved the adrenaline.

I met journalists that were on both sides of things.

The Mirror is breaking ranks, and that's good news.
